An Indian Spinach Preparation An Indian Spinach Preparation
Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    1 bunch red spinach
    2 tbsp grated coconut
    1/2 tsp crushed garlic (1 crushed clove)
    1/2 tsp cumin seeds
    1/2 tsp paprika (red chili powder)
    1 tsp black (not yellow) mustard seeds
    1.5 tsp sunflower oil
    Salt to taste

Directions

1. Add a little hot water to the coconut and squeeze out all the coconut milk. This makes the coconut less fattening.
2. Wash the spinach thoroughly to remove all traces of pesticides and other dirt. You can even soak it in water for a few minutes. Or else use organic spinach. Finely chop the spinach . Wash thoroughly
3. Mix the garlic, cumin seeds, grated coconut, turmeric and paprika together thoroughly. You can use a blender or a press to mix the garlic thoroughly with the other ingredients.
4. Heat the oil in a heavy bottom pan on a medium flame.
5. When it's hot, add the mustard seeds. When it starts spluttering, add the chopped spinach.
6. Add salt to taste and cover the pan. Cook for 3-5 minutes on a very low flame until the spinach becomes soft.
7. Now add the other ground ingredients and mix
8. Cover and cook for another 2 minutes.
9. Now mix all ingredients thoroughly and cook for another minute
Your dish is now ready. This prepares three one cup servings. Serve hot with rice. I love eating this with rice and cold low fat yogurt. If you try out the recipe, let me know how it turned out.
